|Poppy's Purse starts her gallops work under the critical gaze of trainer Ollie Pears.|
|DATE POSTED: 20/01/2012|
One of the names to
remember this year in the training ranks will be Ollie Pears.
the 35 year-old has his biggest stable of horses he has ever trained
for a season on the turf which includes fourteen 2YO's, two of which
are owned by Ownaracehorse shareholders...
Ollie Pears is a name in racing which has yet to resonate, but we believe this young flat trainer is set to break into the top echelon of horseracing in 2012 as he fields a full yard of 35 horses in 2012.
More than a third of this number are untried and untested 2YO's - but there is a good reason for this. One glance at Ollie's record over the last few seasons with his youngsters tells you all you need to know about his training prowess with young horses. Put simply, he is successful.
With a strike rate always in double figures for his 2YO's, Ollie has ramped up his younger horses for 2012 and has almost doubled his intake thanks to successful and supportive owners and an extension to his yard which has taken him to a capacity of 35 from 24 horses last season.
We have two 2YO's with Ollie this season - Poppy's Purse and Throwing Roses. These filly's were bought at the Doncaster and Newmarket Autumn sales. Both are now galloping daily and are being aimed to start racing in the first few months of the flat season.
Below you can see a short video of Poppy's Purse at the top of the Malton Wold Gallops after completing a swinging gallop on January 20th. The filly is out of a winning mare and related to black type winners. She's a forward individual and Ollie is particularly impressed with her excellent attitude to her work and people in general.

We are delighted to be associated with the Ollie Pears yard, and after watching Poppy's Purse complete her first few pieces of gallop work we and shareholders in this filly are looking forward to the new turf flat season with growing anticipation.
And don't forget that you can be a part of these 2YO's from as little as a one-off payment of £105! Click on the links below to view the in-depth profiles of both horses in Ollie's care.
